ON THE TRAIL OF THE SUNFLOWER KILLER
Even before the video, The Sunflower Killings were a mystery. A fresh kill, a new lead. All hush-hush. But nothing stays buried forever. Particularly when a freelance columnist down on his luck and possibly out of his mind is hired to investigate. Primed with a tendency towards the weird, a familiarity with the occult and the paranormal he seemed like the right man for the job.
The trail of The Sunflower leads to more than a standard investigation, sending him on a five year journey into the depths of mind bending darkness, a shamanic trial that tests the limits of wits and sanity. There is little more twisted than the abyss of the psyche, and if there were answers to be found, would he survive to find them, or be sane long enough to understand them?
THE CONSTANT WAKE
A product of nightmares. After the loss of his family, wandering through the abyss of drink. Getting by, making do. Business as usual. At least until one haze of a drunken night, diverted by a former colleague. Appealing to his hardcoded professionalism and death wish, a job prospect: going into deep cover, infiltrate a radical splinter group of The Sunflower cult known as The Soldiers of Helios.
A natural talent with firearms, wading through a sea of blood and bullets comes easily. Haunted by the ghosts of the past and gross spectres of the future. Sloshing on, waiting for that bullet that would never come.
SOUTH OF KETHER
A world of perpetual decay, without purpose, delusions bind strong. Honour and virtues, little but farcical fictions for the hopeful.
An unrelenting professional bounty killer, reduced to simple survival. Adaptive and uncompromising, cursed to a path of turmoil and ultra-violence. Proficient brutality, battling beasts and a myriad of monsters for coin and sustenance.
On an elusive path, wrought with dire circumstances and grave contracts. Facing chronic irrelevance in a crumbling existence approaching stagnation. A loss of self beyond nominal base function and deadly method. Forging on with steel, iron, and sheer will. Staying the course, persevering with savage lethality towards the inevitable terminal conclusion.
